of the off-the-cuff, off-prompter moments, if you will, alluding to alleged racism to hurricane katrina and spending decisions made by our elected leaders. our chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live in washington with more. mike? >> reporter: hi, megyn. the tone has attracted some attention with then-candidate obama sounding different as he spoke to a large group of african-american religious leaders in virginia. one major topic was mr. obama trying to contrast the response to hurricane katrina and other high-profile disasters. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city, they said this is too serious a problem, we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget that dollar you've got to put in, here's $10. and that was the right ting to do. thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with your own money here. here's the money to rebuild. we're not going to wait for you to scratch it together. because you're part of the american family. what's happening down in new orleans? where's your do
response to hurricane katrina. other media outlets covered it as well. but what was not covered then was senator obama's praise for his controversial pastor jeremiah wright. the additional comments what about he called disparity in the way new orleans got federal assistance after katrina and his charge that that was because of race. >> there is a law, federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the stafford act. basically it says when you get federal money you have to give a 10% match, local government has to come up with 10%. every $10 federal government comes up with, local government has to give $1. now here is the thing. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act and said this is too serious a problemch we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget that dollar you have to put in. here is $10. that was the right thing to d do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with your own money here. here is the money to rebuild. we're in the

. the paradox of the mittens, katrina. >> i mean the romney/ryan campaign so far has been defined by dodge, duck and cover. there's no -- the specifics haven't been there. but you know i think it's wrong to think of mitt romney as his own man. he's a vehicle for a republican party that has become very extremist and a vehicle for a party that also is trying to straddle many different factions and fractions, but extremism has won out. so tomorrow, it's not going to be the lincoln/douglas debates, we'll hear massaged talking points and debates have not been so decisive except when the races are very already tight, kennedy/nixon, gore/bush, but we may well see the narrative of a 1% romney which we've seen reinforcing the 47%. video and that -- and out of touch with not only his own being who he was, but with ordinary voters, average people in this country. >> i'm -- i'm eager to see how romney deals with follow-up questions. ryan's stuff the contention i don't have enough time, what i'm trying to basically tear apart the american social compact, you know, in some -- if you interpret it in one way bu

point. >> sean: he is saying that katrina victims were not taken care of by the government because the government is against black people. >> right. >> sean: that's what he is saying. let's go back and roll parliament of this tape and notice the change -- the way you hear him when he gives a speech. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city... they waived the stafford act. said, this is too serious a problem. we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own the. forget that dollar you gotta put in. here's $10. that was the right thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said, look at this devastation. we don't expect to you come up with your money. here! here's the money to rebuild. we are not gonna wait for to you scratch it together because you are part of the american family. what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act mony? makes no sense. tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> sean: where's your dollar? where's your stafford act moany? tells me some of the people down i

monumental mismanagement in katrina by fema during that, there was no stafford money down there the day he said that. no stafford money. >> eric: bob beckel, don't get in that boat. that boat is sinking in front of your eyes. right there said where is your stafford money going? knowing very well, stafford money was approved ten days prior. he voted against it. kimberly, jump in. >> kimberly: this is new title, pand derer in chief, whoever he is in front of, he will morph and become a chameleon. he is sounding like a minister from the south. now he sounds more like bill clinton. he can get up there and say something like that knowing full well his vote was not in support of those people. this shows you, people will say is this the real obama or is he playing a role now as commanderrer in chief? >> greg: two points. they had mother jones discus discussing this. when the story about the haircut incident or bain capital comes up, they never say it came from a liberal blog or outlet. but this is coming up from the conservative areas because you didn't do your damn job. this is another point. t

"the daily caller" web site claimed they dug up a shocking new tape they call president obama's other race speech. it shows just how desperate the right wing is. >> obama has just been subject to the fox news treatment of angry black man again. >> this speech was covered in 2007. it was aired last night on the conservative media, fox's sean hannity, "the daily caller" web site. >> carson called this a bomb shell but a little reality here. this tape is not new. it was an open press event recorded in its entirety in 2007 and many media outlets, including cnn, extensively covered it. >> is it that the liberal mainstream media does
in the government's response to hurricane katrina. now the reverend jeremiah write was in the audience at the time. mr. obama went on to praise the controversial pastor, calling him a friend and a great leader. mike emanuel is live in washington with all of this. and, mike, some of then candidate barack obama's remarks deal with trying to help poor people. how did he handle that topic? >> reporter: well, gregg on the video senator obama at the time seas we don't need to build more highways out in the suburbs. he said there should be investment in minority owned businesses in our neighborhoods in front of that group of black ministers. here is mr. obama on assisting the poor. >> they may need help with basic skills, how to shop, how to show up to work on time. how to wear the right clothes. how to act appropriately in an office. we have to help them get there. >> reporter: about hurricane katrina then senator obama said the federal government doesn't care as much about the people down in new orleans of the he says the poverty and hopelessness there were long before the hurricane and katrina pulled
into the president's controversial remarks about race and relief efforts for the victims of hurricane katrina. >>> also, frank luntz watched the debate with a cross-section of republicans, democrats and independents. he will tell us what they took away from the faceoff. he says it's unprecedented. >> when it comes to the role of government in society, which one connected to you more when they discussed the role of government, romney or obama? megyn: fox news alert, we confirmed in just the last half hour that fbi agents have now arrived in benghazi, libya, three weeks after the murder of four americans at our consulate. remember, two navy seals, a state department staffer and ambassador chris stevens were killed there on 9/11 of this year. the obama administration initially suggested the violence was sparked by anger over an anti-muslim film posted in part on the internet, but senior u.s. intelligence sources later said this was a deliberate and organized terror attack, and they told fox news that the administration knew that, was informed of that within 24 hours, leaving the question about w
criticized the response to hurricane katrina and provided certain analysts with an excuse for a little racial fear mongering. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. >> do you notice a change in the way he delivers this speech? >> this accent is absurd. this is not the way obama talks. in is not a dog whistle. this is a dog siren. >> it's incendiary -- >> yes, it's just about as incendiary as two white dudes debates how black is too black in a black man's speech. indeed, fox ran with it all the way into the morning on "fox and friends". >> we watched president obama for 3 hchl years. i don't think he's governed in a race this way at all. i think that was going to be an issue. should have been an issue in '08. does anyone think president obama is more towards one race? i don't think so. >> roger rails would like to see you in his office. joining us right now, let's get to our panel here in denver, mike shira, "time" magazine, white house correspondent, who has the cover story in th

a different speaking style than usual, obama charged new orleans, post-hurricane katrina, was supposed to get disaster from the stafford fund. a requirement waived for other disaster victims. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act. said this is too serious a problem. we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. >> reporter: same with hurricane andrew in florida, he said. but -- >> what's happening down in new orleans? there's your dollars? where's your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow, the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> reporter: beyond the accuracy of the charge, critics say the president was divisively pandering to a black crowd, by suggesting malicious discrimination against new orleans. >> people in washington, they wake up, they're surprised. there's poverty in our midst. folks are frustrated. black people, angry. >> reporter: the video also features obama extolling his then-reverend, jeremiah wright. >> a guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens t

have been barack -- equivalent for barack obama of george bush's flying over katrina moment. >> but nothing was said at all. and nothing will be said. >> with us now is mr. caddell. so you think this is an organized press suppression of this story? >> well, organized -- whether it's organized is a straight conspiracy, everyone is in on it and doing it and it's a purposeful conscious effort to suppress news that might help obama. we have gone down a slippery slope here. look, bill, we have had liberal bias or bias in the press for a long time. for many years. but it's gotten worse starting in 2008. now we have a press that actively engages in the re-election. putting out a narrative that romney is a loser, you know running polls, they are using like telling n.i.v. adding on romney. romney is not my issue here. not only decide to support obama on this issue the last two weeks, what we see is a press that has decided that it will not tell the american people the truth. not only tell people oho they may or may not vote for but now telling people what truth they may know and what
back in 2007, about victims of hurricane katrina. first, let's listen to the clip. >> contains some of the most divisive class warfare and racially charged rhetoric ever used by barack obama. >> people asked me whether race was the reason response was so slow. i said this administration was color-blind in its incompetence. but -- but, everyone here knows that the disaster and the poverty happened long before the hurricane hit. >> now, nbc and several other media outlets also covered this speech back in 2007. so mollet, what did your listeners have to say on this? >> in large part, they said, who thought this was a good idea. and they're saying it actually could backfire for the conservatives here, because if a republican could fail, as was perceived back then, george bush, failed people who were most in need, goes back to the 47% comment, the undecided voters, middle class, those people who have admitted today they've needed government assistance, if a republican could fail those people, then possibly we might not want to take a chance again on a republican, when the country is in s
race in the katrina aftermath, and they say that nobody has even seen it before, but here's a speech they're talking about. we're going to take a look at it. it is june of 2007. then senator barack obama speaking at the university of virginia. looks like, of course, it was recorded at a stf have tv station, and that tv station, a cnn affiliate, and cnn covered a lot of the networks covered, as a matter of fact. it was not recently dug up, and it is not new. joe johns is watching the story very closely from washington. joe, first of all, in covering the candidate, i know it's not new. i mean, we all saw this speech. we covered it, and we covered the whole issue of reverend wright. very extensively with the president and even with the first lady in putting many questions to them about this. what's the fuss? >> well, suzanne, you know and i know this is a political year. it could be -- thinking they have an exclusive, running with it as soon as they saw it. either way safe to say, yes, this is old news. the reason it gets attention from conservative -- it's really -- he has never fully
prepared remarks talking about how he says victims of katrina got shortchanged by the bush administration. >> what happened down in new orleans? where's your dollar? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> hannity then played this clip. >> we don't need to build more highways out in the suburbs if we have people in the cities right now who want to work but have no way to get to those jobs. >> hannity then came out and said this. >> this is what so-called unbiased journalists have been trying to hide for years, a glimpse into the mind of the real barack obama. and it's one that all americans need to pay close attention to. >> did journalists hide that? our research shows they did not. we dug into cnn's archives and found references in our coverage to the portion of the speech where obama talks about new orleans. this was on paula zahn's program the night before the speech. >> now nearly two years after hurricane katrina hit new orleans, obama insists our country still ignores communit
then warned of a quote, quiet riot building in the african-american community in the wake of hurricane katrina and other factors which he said the bush administration was neglecting. as we said, this tape isn't new, only part of it is out there, and the hyping of it may have as much to do with politics and little to do with content. we'll see. more is supposed to be released later tonight. joining us, paul begala who advises the leading pro-obama super pac and gloria borger. also, the founder of your black world.com and eric erickson. paul, what's your reaction to all this? >> you know, a long time ago, a veteran journalist by the name of john king was with the associated press and i was complaining about something they weren't covering. he pointed out they had already covered it. he wrote the word news on his notepad, and covered up the s. it's a five-year-old speech, cnn covered it five years ago. maybe it's shocking. it turns out, i follow this more closely maybe than the right wing blogs, our president is african-american and he belonged to reverend wright's church in chicago. i just don't
. . host: laura is a republican. hi, laura, you are on. caller: i wanted to say to katrina, if you want to talk about common sense policies, maybe you need to listen to rush limbaugh and maybe you need to really listen to what mr. romney said about this economy. if you are concerned about poverty, do you know that the number one group tracked in poverty is single thing all households -- single female soul? you need to look at stuff that the conservatives are saying because they care about the portrait they don't want people trapped in poverty. they know what small businesses, which employs 60-70% of the citizens and in this country, taxed more. if you tax small business, they are not going to hire. i don't know how you don't figure out what mr. romney so eloquently said in that debate. talking about politics of the 1% or the 47%, conservatives want the best for all folks, and yes, we mean thewe don't want them trapped in poverty. we want them married, paying their taxes -- host: we will get katrina vanden heuvel's response. guest: yeah. listen, if marriage will promote the well-being of
